Severe Leg Wound With Time Line As Its Treated With Corigem®

Nova the horse was treated for a long time with traditional methods. The wound was getting worse, more flesh was falling off and it started to smell. The odor was horrible. The doctor was fearful that the horse might not be able to recover from this to be able to train again as a racehorse. They didn’t know what to do for this wound. Dr. Carl started spraying the leg while still giving oral antibiotics.

Nova the horse was treated for a long time with traditional methods. The wound was getting worse, more flesh was falling off and it started to smell. The odor was horrible and the doctor was fearful that the horse might not be able to recover from this to be able to train again as a racehorse. They didn’t know what to do for this wound. Dr. Carl started spraying the leg while still giving oral antibiotics. This picture was taken 5 days after spraying 3x’s a day with Corigem®. You can see the bone and ligament. You can also see that the tissue is a light pink color, which shows a poor blood supply.(3)

Day 15: Monday, November 2, 2009

The wound is now filling in nicely. You can see it is now a deeper red, which shows a better blood supply. It is also clear to a lay person’s eyes that the wound is narrower. This was 2 weeks into the treatment of spraying Corigem3x’s a day.

Day 19: Friday, November 6, 2009

This picture was taken by the horse’s owner 3 weeks after the initial Corigem® regimen was started. The horse was able to go back to its owner’s farm where they continued using the Corigem® spray 3x’s a day. It is clear that the wound is still healing. While the picture is from a different camera and so has a different look, you can clearly see that the outer area is again much narrower, the wound is getting smaller. At this point, the horse is walking without a limp. (3)

Day 35: Sunday, November 22, 2009

After 4 ½ weeks Nova was treated with Corigem® cream as the final part of the healing. Up until now only Corigem® spray was used. After just a few days of using the cream, there was a huge difference! Not only has the swelling gone down but the healing process has tripled! I am proud to say Nova is ready to begin training this week.(3)

 

3 Year Old Thoroughbred With Girth Rub

3 year old Thoroughbred “Ollie” developed girth rub while being ridden and was treated with washing and cleaning the area with water and Corigem® wash and applying Corigem® cream as per the days on the pictures

Day 1

The first day of using Corigem® for girth rub the affected area would be considered an open wound. Ollie was very tender in the area and we were unable to train him because of the raw skin in the location of the girth.

Day 2

The second day using Corigem® for girth rub you can already see the healing in action. Although healing has already begun within the first 24 hours of applying the Corigem®, we did not ride Ollie to allow the area to further heal.

Day 5

The fifth day of using Corigem® for girth rub it appears that the hair is already starting to come back, and the area is free of all signs of redness, the new skin is also a healthy normal color. On this day we began to ride Ollie again with a wool protection around the girth so as to not re-irritate the affected area. We did not lose any further days of training because of the initial skin problem.(4)
